Use RoboCopy that comes with the NT Resource Kit. Have NTlogin call a .cmd file that calls RoboCopy. I searched utility sites for days looking for a copy utility that would synchronize directories. None of the utilities I could find delete files on the target that have been removed from the source. RoboCopy does, and was sitting there in the Resource Kit throughout my search. I use it in conjunction with the shareware scheduler Reminders for 95/NT by Gregory Braun available at www.execpc.com/~sbd

I would suggest looking at either SMS or a product called WinInstall (http://www.veritas.com/products/wi/). They give you very robust software installation and maintenance options.

We do system updates and software distribution from two different methods. We use SMS 2.0 and logon scripts (Kixtart). Kixtart is a great way to make Registry changes and to rollout simple updates such as McAfee virus updates.
